Summer is here, and we’re bracing for the triple-digit weather! Luckily, the McClellan Conference Center is just minutes from some of the region’s “coolest” attractions. Here are some of our favorite ways to beat the heat!
• Raging Waters – This Cal Expo attraction is fun for the whole family, and located just fifteen minutes from the Conference Center. One of Sacramento’s top amusement parks, Raging Waters has rides, slides and pools—and fun activities for little ones, too! They have a food court with dining options like Yogurtland, Beach Side BBQ and Oasis bar, or you can come back to McClellan Park and dine at The O’Club Restaurant & Lounge. Open through September. Tickets and more information available at www.rwsac.com.
• If being outdoors isn’t your “thing,” you can cool down inside some of the best malls in the region! We’re a short distance from both the Westfield Galleria at Roseville and Sacramento’s Arden Fair Mall. Both malls have a great variety of stores, ample parking and delicious neighboring restaurants. Roseville Galleria, 1151 Galleria Blvd, Roseville CA 95678, www.westfield.com/galleriaatroseville. Arden Fair Mall, 1689 Arden Way Sacramento, CA 95815, www.ardenfair.com/.
• American River Parkway – Referred to as the “jewel of Sacramento,” the 23-mile American River Parkway is perfect for families, water and nature enthusiasts alike. Fish, boat or raft on the river, or pack a picnic and go on a guided tour along paved trails. There are several access points within 45 minutes of the MCC. View the full list here.
